Wait a second …….I didn’t order the Veal! I know when I receive the check at the restaurant I give it a once over to make sure I am not paying for any mystery items. Or imagine if you took your car into the shop for an oil change and you come out with new tires! It sounds crazy but these things happen all of the time and it’s happening in the owner to contractor relationship every day with inaccurate billing, lack of visibility, and work inefficiencies.
In the world of contract labor an owner has a need and the skilled contractor performs that service based on an hourly rate. What’s critical though is the expectation that the work will be performed on-time, per hourly rate, and per job standards. Contractors want to work on the right jobs, do them well, and get paid. Owners want the work completed, to pay their contractors, and increase profits. Problem with most industries today is the lack of visibility and control between the owner/contractor relationships.
MCI has been tackling this problem with the Oil & Gas, Chemical, Steel, Mining industries for over 25 years. Track software, MCI’s flagship solution, is sandwiched right in the middle of the owner and contractor with one mission in mind. To provide the owner and contractor shared visibility and control. Visibility on who/how many contractors are currently on site, to what work they are performing and where. Owners are able to apply automated contract terms and conditions to the contractor and the contractor ultimately gets paid daily.
One catch – Track software was previously confined to a perimeter or fenced area that used gate access or a turnstiles. MCI had not been able to tackle the remote, outside of perimeter challenges until now with the emergence of mobility into the workforce. All that changes now with MCI’s new mobility solution. Track Mobility provides the Track solution literally anywhere. Where you have contracted work you could have Track. A worker in the oil field, a high-rise, or an airport expansion project. The options are endless for providing the Track solution for any industry virtually anywhere.
